Thank you so much to Tor Teen for sending me an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Now, I was born in the 80’s, grew up in that time period, but I have never seen The Princess Bride. What?! Blasphemy, you say! I know, I know. Let me just say, even without knowing that storyline, I thoroughly enjoyed Sarah Henning’s story inspired by this classic! I was drawn in right from Chapter 1 and found myself loving Ama’s character so much!
This book is full of political intrigue, female empowerment and a romance to sweep you off your feet. I loved the many twists and turns the story took along the way and found myself trying to guess what exactly was going to happen before it did (I was wrong most of the time LOL). I am so engrossed in Ama and Luca’s story at this point. I feel like the plot moved very quickly (but not too quickly), the action was there as were the romance and friendships! I can’t wait for book 2! I need it now!
Definitely pick this up if you like books that read like you’re watching an epic movie!
